About Us

We are located in South Texas about 2 miles southeast of Pearsall on FM 1582, on a farm that’s been in our family since the early 1940’s when my grandfather purchased the land and became a renowned peanut farmer. My parents then built a house and moved to the farm in 1985. In the summer of 2014, when I retired from a 30 year career in healthcare finance and moved home, my father and I decided to become breeders of Labrador retrievers, particular Silver Labs (diluted chocolate). In Frio County, we have thousands of hunters pass through each year during dove and whitetail deer season. Labrador retrievers are by far the first choice for hunters when looking for a hunting dog. And they, of course, make incredibly good-natured, loyal pets as well!

We have state-of-the-art facilities for our labs. Our kennel & dog run has about a 400 ft. perimeter fence line, protected from the wild critters and rattlesnakes that roam in this area. The main dog house is large (8×16 storage bldg), and split into two sections, allowing a whelping mother and her puppies to be separated from the other dogs. We added a second dog house (8×10 storage bldg) earlier this year. ¬†Both dog house are air-conditioned to help them stay comfortable during the hot Texas summers.

We are Christians and we love and serve Jesus Christ each and every day. We want to find the best new homes for our puppies, and want them to be treated very well and loved just like a member of the family. We will help you in any way we can after you take your puppy home to ensure any questions you have are answered, and that the best possible care is taken as your new puppy grows and develops into a beautiful Labrador! We have a tremendous amount of pride in our Silver Labs, and we know you will too!

We look forward to meeting you and presenting you with an adorable new puppy for your home. See the Available Puppies page to find out what puppies we currently have available and the upcoming litters we are expecting.
